Do not shake varnish. Stir gently before application, being careful not to introduce air bubbles into the varnish. Z*Spar 2015 Flagship Varnish may be applied by brush or conventional spray. Thinning is not normally required although on warm days use Pettit 120/T10 Brushing Thinner at 5- 10% by volume to ease brushing and maintain good flow and levelling. In very warm weather (80°F and above) use Pettit 110/T11 Brush Flo Thinner at 5-10% by volume to maintain good flow and levelling. When spraying, use Pettit 121/T8 Spraying Thinner up to 10% by volume. Spray an even, wet coat to minimize orange peel. Do not apply Flagship Varnish on extremely humid days or when rain is threatening. Do not apply in the late afternoon when working outdoors as the wet film may be adversely affected by dew. DO NOT apply this varnish to a wood hull which has been dried more than one week under conditions such as artificial heat. Do not use Flagship Varnish below the waterline on boats that remain in the water. The moisture content of the wood should be a minimum of 15% when varnished. This will eliminate expansion cracking, micro-checking and gloss loss when the varnish is in service.
Wood must be clean, dry and properly prepared prior to varnishing. When sanding wood, always sand with the grain. Use a vacuum, air hose, or tack rag to remove all traces of sanding residue. Follow all surface preparation steps carefully, avoiding shortcuts. Inadequate surface preparation will virtually assure inadequate varnish performance.
